Pelosi indicates she may support overturning election of freshman GOP Rep

Likely rattled by the slim nature of the House majority they retained in November, Democrats appear to be on the verge of using procedural chicanery to snatch another seat out of the GOP’s hands.

According to the Daily Wire, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is open to the possibility that her party would take steps to replace Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller (R-IA) with Democrat challenger Rita Hart, who lost the hotly contested November election by just six votes.

The controversy stems from the fact that the race for Iowa’s 2nd congressional district seat was extremely close – Miller-Meeks won by a mere 0.0015 percentage points – but that the outcome was ultimately certified following a formal recount, as the Des Moines Register reported.

Subsequently, Hart lodged an official challenge of the results with the House Committee on Administration, which has authority to review election returns and outcomes, and which can also determine who will be seated in Congress.

On Wednesday, that committee convened to address a motion filed by Miller-Meeks which would dismiss Hart’s challenge to the election results once and for all, but it ultimately voted to table consideration of the measure and to begin the process of determining “procedures, legal principles, and timelines” for resolving the dispute, according to National Review.

At a press conference the following day, Pelosi was asked if there was a real possibility that Miller-Meeks, who was provisionally sworn in to Congress on Jan. 3, would be unseated and replaced by her Democrat rival. She replied:

Well, I respect the work of the Committee. I did see, as you saw in the press, what [the committee] decided to, and they were following my, as I read it, the requirements of the law as to how you go forward, and how you go forward is the path you’re on.

And, and we’ll see where that takes us.

Yeah, but there could be a scenario to that extent, yes.

Though Pelosi is justified in her belief that Congress has the right to seat whomever it chooses, and that the Constitution specifies that “each House shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members,” only once in the last 35 years has an outcome been overturned in the manner being suggested in this case.

Upon learning of the committee’s decision and Pelosi’s comments in response, the Iowa Republican Party issued a tweet warning that the speaker and her Democrat colleagues “are going to try and steal #IA02,” further declaring, “they must be stopped.”

Given the nakedly partisan and wholly unabashed manner in which Pelosi is trying to do with brute force what could not be done at the ballot box, it is hard to disagree with that assessment.

  1. Okay, we’ll give her the House seat BUT…….we DEMAND that we recall Biden for fraud as Biden was incapable of being the President because of mental issues and install President Trump as President. Bet she wouldn’t go for that at all!

    1. RIGHT ON JIM. NOW I WANT TO KNOW-IF THE DEMOCRATS IN IOWA (AND CROOKED PELOSI) CANUSE ARCANE CONGRESSIONAL RULE TO REVERSE AND SEAT ONE OF THEIR OWN OVER 6 VOTES WON FAIRLY BY THE REPUBLICAN—-WHY CAN’T THE REPUBLICANS USE ARCANE CONGRESSIONAL RULE TO REVERSE AND SEAT ONE OUR OWN THAT WON FAIR AND SQUARE BUT WAS CHEATED THROUGH FRAUD AND NOW RUINING OUR COUNTRY–PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE DOUBLE STANDARD FOR DEMOCRATS BUT NOT REPUBLICANS.!!!!!

  2. Nancy and Sleepy Joe need to WAKE UP TO THE CONCERNS OF THE CITIZENS OF THE USA neither tell the TRUTH. Nancy is in the role of a dictator and Sleepy Joe is a poor specimen of a leader of the USA. He needs to stop taking credit for the vaccine program President Trump accomplished. It’s well underway. He needs to focus on the border CRISIS he keeps ignoring along with his PRESS SECRATARY. Wake up Joe and have her ell the truth. It’s not a challenge it’s a crisis. This is more dangerous than Corvid 19. And Nancy is only worried about herself and fellow democrats. Nancy speak up to Sleepy Joe and show your concern for the Citizens of the USA. IT’S YOUR JOB. THAT’S WHAT YOU A PAID FOR.

  3. If Pelosi dates to go forward to unseat the Iowa representative Mariannette Miller, then consideration should be given to President Trump and unseat Biden.

  4. I think what Pelosi is worried about is that some Democrats are actually thinking about switching to Republican and that may be enough to change who the Speaker is and THAT would kick her out of her position! Wouldn’t that be nice!

  5. Theft of elections seem to be the norm for Democrat’s now. If Pelosi does this then we may as well be a Communist Dictatorship ,without them actually saying it. If they remove her then I feel they should remove both Biden and Harris. Then Schumer < Waters , AOC , Thge Group and of course Pelosi For Collusion.

  6. The Only Election that needs to be Overturned is the One’s that were STOLEN from the Truly and Duly Elected POTUS Donald J. Trump 2024 😃😃😃😃😃 .

  7. The Only Election that needs to be Overturned is the One’s that were STOLEN from the Truly and Duly Elected POTUS Donald J. Trump 2024 😃😃😃😃😃 . And LAP D.. F… Pelosi needs to be Overturned and IMPEACHED ! 😃😃😃😃😃

  8. Do not believe/trust Pelosi as she is a liar now and always has been. It is time that the House of Representatives stands up for the laws of the land, stands up for upholding the laws of the House of Representatives and ignore the lying, old “Bat” who is the number one enemy of the Republican Party. Stop Pelosi … do not let her rule the House and the Senate. The people of each state elect who they want to have a seat in the U.S. Congress, and it is not Pelosi’s place to deny the state their choice in the House of Representatives.
